The NFL didn’t think Antonio Brown’s cleats honoring Muhammad Ali were the greatest of all time.
The league’s wardrobe police told the Pittsburgh receiver to remove the Ali-inspired footwear before the Steelers’ game on Sunday against the Jets, according to the CBS broadcast of the game.
Brown donned the Ali shoes for the first two series of the game, before switching to a standard black-and-white Nike cleat thereafter.
Antonio Brown goes back to his regular cleats after getting a warning from the NFL.
Two weeks ago, an NFL official had ordered Brown to change out of blue cleats with his children’s faces on them. Last week, he wore cleats honoring late golfing legend Arnold Palmer.
The All-Pro wideout already has earned nearly $50,000 in fines this season for uniform violations and excessive celebrations after touchdowns.
